    Ok doing my first quilt I spent a LOT of time working on it, all nighters ect. So when I finished the top I started cutting my second. Now my wife is saying I am spending too much time doing this. So what do you do when your spouse says...your spending too much time quilting?
    Thank you for any suggestions
    David

    HAAAAA...they will always say that. Maybe get her to join you, so she can see how fun it is, and then you both will be lost in time quilting.

    I think my husband gets a bit tired of my crafting (not just quilting but all of it that I do) at times. So I give him a couple of nights just watching TV and that seems to work for a while. LOL

    It's just like anything else in a marriage - balance and compromise are key! Everyone can get what they want, you just need to work together to figure out what that is and how to get there.

    I quilt in the living room with my husband. I'm planning to move my sewing all upstairs shortly, with part of the room being dedicated to my husband's musical instruments (he's a musician and music teacher) so he can practice while I quilt.

    You'll work it out. :)

    my guy wants to move his drums, keyboard and trumpet into my sewing room just to be in there...I told him there isn't room for an entire musical studio.

    I tell mine that it beats sitting on the couch zombified watching whatever sports game that happens to be on the tv. It usually shuts him up plus he likes me sane.

    His drums alone would take up half the room...so I'd have to move my cutting table out...

    We've agreed that his keyboard and trumpet can go in, but the drums need to stay in the music room.
